Launched in 2010, the Women in the City Future Leaders Award recognises the achievements to date and the leadership potential of fast-track women in the early stages of their career.
After a year of record numbers of nominations and applications this year’s Future Leaders Award has introduced us to some very talented and inspiring women. The judging panels have had a difficult time making their selections and we decided to shortlist 12 candidates this year instead of the usual 10. We had a long, but interesting day at ICAEW’s Chartered Accountant’s Hall where the interviews took place and our Main Judging Panel battled over deciding on the 5 finalists and the winner. All the candidates impressed us and we are thrilled to have such an amazing collection of women in our shortlist.
